Not sure what to say?

I just heard about Edwin. I wish I had known earlier so I could have paid my respects. All our prayers and sympathy are with you.
I will miss him and our talks greatly.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He...

To The Jackson Family:
We are very sorry to hear about your loss. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God's love and peace comfort you always!
